LONDON (AP) — Roman Abramovich’s 19 years as Chelsea owner is closer to ending after the British government approved the sale of the Premier League club by the sanctioned Russian oligarch to a consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly. The government had to be sure that Abramovich, who was sanctioned over his links to Russian President Vladimir Putin, did not profit from the enforced sale of the club that his investment turned into one of the most successful in European fo
HALIFAX — An active Atlantic hurricane season is expected to begin next week, and experts are urging those in the region to be prepared. Bob Robichaud, a meteorologist with the Canadian Hurricane Centre, says the latest data predicts up to 21 storms this year in the Atlantic Ocean that will be strong enough to warrant a name. That number is on par with last year's 21 named storms and much higher than the 30-year average of 14 named storms in a season, Robichaud said Tuesday. "It's impossible to
A rematch three years in the making is the most important game of the season so far for the Vancouver Whitecaps, says head coach Vanni Sartini. The club knows it must beat Cavalry FC in the second round of the Canadian Championship on Wednesday in order to advance — and Vancouver's record against the Canadian Premier League side isn't exactly positive. The 'Caps were heavily favoured when they came up against Cavalry in the 2019 tournament. But Calgary stunned with a 2-1 aggregate win, ousting t
The late Edward Lennie was known as a leader, a mentor, and a passionate advocate of Arctic sports. Now he's being recognized for his contribution to sports at a national level.

His son, Hans Lennie, said to be recognized with the Order of Sport is an honour. "My father's dream has finally come true," he said. Arctic sports are being recognized internationally, but Edward Lenni

When researchers at the University of Saskatchewan began to find bits of COVID-19 they couldn't identify earlier this month, they began to get curious. According to readings released on May 8, samples taken from Saskatoon's wastewater showed that 3.2 per cent were listed as "other lineages" and were not identified as the BA.2 variant of Omicron, which made up the vast majority of samples being taken (96.8 per cent). As a result, the researchers decided to send the mystery samples from Saskatoon

Saturday's damaging, fatal windstorm has made it difficult to get fuel in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Some gas stations have closed due to damage or lack of power, while others have simply run out of supply. Long lines have been reported at some stations that do have fuel. Others are operating close to normal. All this comes after the major wind and thunderstorm blew down trees and hydro equipment across a wide swath of eastern Ontario and parts of western Quebec, leaving tens of thousands of cu
As drought and climate change tighten their grip on the American West, the sight of fountains, swimming pools, gardens and golf courses in cities like Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Boise, and Albuquerque can be jarring at first glance. Western water experts, however, say they aren’t necessarily cause for concern. Over the past three decades, major Western cities — particularly in California and Nevada — have diversified their water sources, boosted local supplies through infra

McCormick's lawsuit, filed after hours, asks the state's Commonwealth Court to require counties to promptly count mail-in ballots that lack a required handwritten date on the ret
LONDON (Reuters) -The World Health Organization does not believe the monkeypox outbreak outside of Africa requires mass vaccinations as measures like good hygiene and safe sexual behaviour will help control its spread, a senior official said on Monday. Richard Pebody, who leads the high-threat pathogen team at WHO Europe, also told Reuters in an interview that immediate supplies of vaccines and antivirals are relatively limited. His comments came as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it was in the process of releasing some Jynneos vaccine doses for use in monkeypox cases.
